Ostomy dating validating a foreign adoption in colorado
Raider Steve, sitting in the hospital once again, but more hopeful this time! Stomach is acting a little queasy because they have me on a liquid diet. Dear members, As patients and caregivers, we have more sources of medical information available to us than ever before to help us make the best decisions possible for our health. I had emergency surgery back in January for UC, I ended up having all of my colon removed and I now have a ileostomy, I call my stoma my lil squirt. About a month ago I started loosing my hair, I now have just a tiny pony tail left but my hair is growing back slowly, its about 1/8 of an inch all over my head.

) Since last posting months ago, it has been constant pain and hospital visits for Raider Steve (and constant cts and scopings trying to figure out the cause of his pain). Advice from our doctors is sometimes not the same as the information we learn from the experiences of our peers, and there are often other sources of information available as well.
It forced me to become this phony person who never felt good enough, who felt the need to constantly please people, who had absolutely no self confidence, and who had no idea what a real relationship should be.
I was so obsessed (literally, there was no other word to describe me during this time) with getting rid of this thing on my stomach that I poured my heart and soul into focusing on alternative surgeries that would allow me to be with a guy and have him find me attractive and be able to wear clothes that everyone else could.
I was sick for three years with Ulcerative Colitis and would always joke that the next step would be a bag. But when a surgeon walked up to my hospital bed and said, , leaving me in tears, my new reality began.
When I used to say that I could end up with a bag, I didn’t really understand what it meant because like I said, I never really thought it would happen to me.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... If you went on a date with a person with a bag and you knew it, would it make a difference in your choice of a 2nd date?
We can’t always attend things spontaneously because most of us prefer to have a heads up so we can make sure everything’s okay and we are feeling well enough to go to these social occasions.My obsession led to me having five kock pouch operations (also known as a continent ileostomy.) When I had a kock pouch, only a small bandage was needed over the what looked like an inverted stoma.I put a catheter into the stoma which allowed stool to come out of the body. Free from the inner torture that ensued me for years of living with a traditional ileostomy. The issue was me and how uncomfortable I was in my own skin.No one had to know anything other than I had surgery. External appliance or no external appliance; I still wasn’t okay with my situation. It wasn’t until I connected with other people who I felt understood what I was going through, that things began to turn around for me.I also was never going to be in a positive relationship if I couldn’t fully be myself.
